WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Michael Christopher, Washington Township's manager for the last 20 years, will receive this year's President's Leadership Award from the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.
The association represents Pennsylvania's 1,457 townships, all of which have a manager, administrator or secretary, said Keith Hite, assistant executive director of the association.
Hite said the Washington Township Supervisors nominated Christopher, 46, for the award.
Dozens of managers are nominated for the award each year, Hite said. The winner is chosen from a panel of three judges from outside the association, Hite said.
